About this Event

Explore the Pataua estuary and its life – Fun Drift snorkel.  Registrations essential.

This event is funded by Foundation North and run in partnership with whānau from Te Waiariki/Ngati Korora.

Explore the Pataua estuary through this fun guided drift snorkel. Watch schools of Parore, piper and yellow eyed mullet and have a close look at triplefin, anemones and hermit crabs - this estuary will surprise you with its abundance of life! Bring your own gear or get free hire of our mask, snorkel, fins and wetsuits. Recommended for everyone 8 years and up. Children under 15 will need an adult supervisor with them in the water. Recommended for confident swimmers.

Advanced safety and sanitisation procedures in place. Registrations essential.Directions

Pataua estuary - We will set up our EMR trailer at Pataua South near the toilets - but if you are coming from the northern side just walk over the bridge!

Just in case you are not familiar with Pataua - the bridge connecting Pataua North and South is a foot bridge only, so you will need to pick the side that you are driving to before the start of your journey. If you are coming from Whangarei or further south it's probably easiest to drive to Pataua South, if you are coming from further north it may be best to drive to Pataua North!

Weather and sea conditions permitting. Back-up date will be the 6th March 2021.

Koha - either by cash on the day, donate online or volunteer on one of our snorkel days. Most people donate $5-10 per person. Check out our frequently asked questions here: https://emr.org.nz/images/emr/pdf/snorkel-days/FAQ__Information_Sheet_2018-19.docx.pdf For any other questions please email isabel@emr.org.nz
